Sandwich Philosophy

Overheard a café: "Which is the chicken and which is the egg?"

A (physicist) friend of mine recently overheard the following fragment of conversation between two philosophy students he vaguely knows:
``I've just got back from teaching English in Moscow.''
``Where was it you were teaching? A private language school?''
``As a good Wittgensteinian, you should know that's impossible.''

He decided this was a good point to sort out the speck of grit under his contact lens.

they should have been able to figure it out by what came to the table first...

Alas, it wasn't a sit-down joint, but cafeteria style. Someone else was fixing his lunch for him... regardless of the order he consumed it in.

Presuming he ended up with something consumable at all.

Still, that would have made it clear!
